Quentin and I are getting married in a little over six months. The time has really crept up on me (it still doesn’t feel like we got engaged last July!) We’re having a garden wedding in Miami, so I’ve been pulling together a ton of garden wedding inspiration photos to get my mind going.
When I look at these photos, my wedding seems more real in my head. These photos pretty accurately convey what I want my wedding to feel like. I just love how blush pink pairs so nicely with all the green from the garden scenery. And I want to incorporate the garden into as many aspects of the wedding as possible: decorating the cake with flowers (and fruit!) is such a good way to do that, and I love the little mason jars filled with flowers as aisle markers; that could be an inexpensive touch that could really make a huge impact.
I’m definitely going for longer bridesmaids dresses in blush pink, just like that first wedding. I think longer dresses look more formal, and they look so lovely and romantic in a garden setting. That last photo is of my DREAM wedding dress. It’s a Monique Lhullier, Spring 2011. It’s way out of my price range (even used versions are solidly out of reach), but if I could have any dress, it would be that one. I’m hoping to find a much more feasible option once I start looking for dresses this month! I’ve actually decided to go by myself to weed out a few choices. And that will be a special moment for me. I wasn’t the girl who had her wedding all planned out, or even thought I’d ever get married, so seeing myself in a wedding dress for the first time…that’s going to be pretty special for me. Like “hey girl, look what we’re doing!” And then I can slap myself a high-five. Can’t really do that with other people around =)
